I loved this book. It was shocking that some of the stories that helped shaped them are things I have in some way dealt with myself. Made me be a little more introspective on some of my interactions with people.

The politeness we‘re raised to prioritize, first and foremost, against our better judgment and whether we feel like being polite or not, is the perfect systematically ingrained personality trait for manipulative, controlling people to exploit.

This book was definitely not what I expected especially from the title. I really did enjoy it! I was looking for more what they spoke about in the end which was murder cases and the unfair treatment of blaming the victim as well as topics like rape culture. But it was more about the actual authors themselves than about the topic of murder. I did enjoy the book, but I think I would have enjoyed it much more if I was more aware of the actual topic.

I didn't even get a chance to mark this as "currently reading", I flew through it so quickly. I have never listened to their podcast, My Favorite Murder, but I plan on it! Although I don't know how I'll make time to listen to a podcast with all of the audiobooks I have downloaded! Loved it.

Most people know I‘m a huge murderino! #ssdgm But I was worried that because of the wait and the hype for this book, my expectations would be too high. I put off reading this for, what, like a week?? 😆 Big delay for me! But it has exceeded my expectations!! The vulnerability they put out there was beyond touching. I laughed and cried (a lot) and it just really moved me. 5 Stars!!

AutumnRLS I read this really fast and loved it. Murderino for life! 3w
Bookladylinda I‘ve been trying to decide if I want to read this one or not, I think I will! Stacked!!! 2w
ShelfAddiction I'm trying to figure out if I want to read this or not. I've read two other Memoir style non-fiction books from True Crime podcasters and they were just average. 1w
I_Like_Big_Books @ShelfAddiction I think if you like K & G, you'll like the book. :) Karen is such a great storyteller... I can listen to her talk about just about anything and enjoy it. I also listened to the audio version so it wasn't much different from listening to the podcast to me.

So I liked this book, but I wouldn‘t say I LOVED it. While I liked the concept of the dual-memoir, Karen‘s sections were much stronger than Georgia‘s (since Karen is an experience TV writer and Georgia is a blogger). They made me laugh and cry, and briefly expanded on stories they‘ve told on the podcast. A solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me. #SSDGM, Littens.

gradcat Yaaasss! I love these two women...when I listen to “My Favorite Murder” I find myself doing that snarky kind of giggling that, if you do it in public, is not very nice! 😂♥️👍 3w

Stay Sexy & Don‘t Get Murdered is an awe-inspiring read that is packed with wonderful self-help tips and brutally honest stories that any reader can connect with.

This book was everything I was hoping for and more. I knew that this was being marketed as a self-help book, but this seriously could not have arrived at my doorstep at a better time…

Just popping out to post some #LitsyLove and to squeeze in a chapter of this audiobook. I‘ve only listened to a few episodes of this podcast, so wouldn‘t call me a mega fan or murderino...but loving the style of this audio book and they are both smart, sassy women. #audiowalk

Chrissyreadit I‘ve been wondering about getting the audiobook. I do enjoy the podcast. 3w
Mitch @Chrissyreadit it‘s great. Some chapters are read live with an audience, and there are are extra bits between chapters. They tell their own stories really well x 3w

We work with middle schoolers a LOT at my job and we‘re constantly reminding ourselves “it‘s not their fault, they‘re literally brain damaged...”. Love that Karen put it here too!

Southern_Mel_13 That's so true! I used to teach and my first year I had 7th graders. I would (only half-jokingly) tell family and friends that 7th graders are terrible human beings, but only because they're still learning how to be decent human beings. 4w

Why, yes, I did pick up a new edition of the #SSDGM book at last night‘s Sit Crooked and Talk Straight event at Barnes & Noble even though I already had a copy from Amazon. It had a bonus Q&A section, okay?! Even though I‘ve been listening to the podcast for years, this book gave an even more in-depth look at their lives and how they‘ve gotten to where they are. I really enjoyed it.

Gissy There is always a great excuse to have 2 copies of the same book: exclusive cover, special edition, exclusive edition, and bla, bla, bla...,, are those the excuses I use?🤔😂🤣sorry I was projecting myself😂 4w
